Happy World Giraffe Day
We’re celebrating World Giraffe Day (June 21st) a little early here at JPB. Recently the Dallas Zoo’s smallest giraffe – Witten, named for newly unretired Cowboy tight end Jason Witten – turned one. He’s nearly eight feet tall and weighs 744 pounds.
How exactly are giraffes weighed? Our manufacturer Emery Winslow has designed and manufactured a wide variety of scales designed specifically for the challenging applications of animal weighing. These scales are currently used to weigh Killer Whales, Elephants, Polar Bears, Hippos, Rhinos, Beluga Whales, Lions, Gorillas, Walruses, Giraffes, Dolphins and more. The reliable weight data provided by these scales is critical for monitoring overall animal health, to measure the effectiveness of various diets, and for proper application of medications and supplements. These scales meet the challenges of harsh environments, which may include physical abuse from the animal, corrosive conditions from animal urine and waste, the effects of water wash down, and even submersion in salt water.
